    How many posts do you think it will be before Mike Milbury's name comes up?

    BTW Bourque seems like a good choice.

    Milbury traded the players after they were drafted, he did a great job drafting though

    As a Kings fan, that was, unfortunately, the first name that came to mind.

    It would be interesting to look at the full draft. I know Washington sent a pick to Quebec in a package for Dale Hunter, which was ultimately used to select Joe Sakic.

    Does anyone else see why the Kings should have won this years lottery? :banghead: Weren't we due some luck?

    I don't know of any other team that consistantly traded it's first round picks(that became great players) for a bunch of short term, gap filling, wastes of space as the Kings did in their first 20 years of existance.

    Fortunately for us, today's management team isn't stupid and believes in developing talent.

    So where's the problem? The goal of any team is to win a Cup not to just draft a good player.

    We're just so caught up with the 'potential' of a prospect that we ultimately overlook the final goal which of course to assemble a championship winning team.

    I think that Washington trading their pick to Quebec in return for Dave Hunter was nice. Quebec then drafted Joe Sakic.

    I could easily see Ignila there but he was drafted before he was traded...
